What SP and RU level are you at?  Make sure you up to date.  Current level is SP3 RU14.

There are a few limitations that can affect your search.


•It is an Exchange Server 2010 feature and it won’t discover content on Mailboxes hosted in any other version other than Exchange Server 2010

•There is a limit of 25,000 mailboxes that can be searched in a single search

•The search process relies on Exchange data which includes Mailbox and Archive content only however, PSTs are not searchable by this feature.

Take a look at this blog and make sure you have the permissions set up correctly for the mailbox doing the search.

How are you doing the search....GUI or PS?

If PS post the search and we can take a look at it.
